Career Guidance after 10th
Class 10th is over, now what? Many students as well as parents today are perplexed by this question.
Choosing your future begins with self-analysis; and we do mean SELF. The opinion of your parents, teachers, and friends should count a little, but not too much. Traditional thinking seems to limit your choices to science, mathematics, commerce and humanities – but that’s no longer the case. Your careers are now best based on your natural skills and talents – whether for writing or for sports or for any interest dear to you.
If you have a penchant for music, acting or modelling then choose subjects that will help you pursue these career courses after 10th.
You have a number of professional career courses after 10th that you may choose. You can take up courses like engineering (IIT, DCE) or MBBS (AIMS, DPMT, CBSE)after 10th and start preparing right away. There’s a wide list of courses after 10th you can take up to better your chances of succeeding in your chosen field. But remember there is no substitute to self study.
